Ch 32: GED Science - Meteorology: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Meteorology chapter of this GED Science Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about meteorology. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the meteorology processes and steps required in a typical GED science course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other GED science work.
  • Identify the meteorology concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our GED science tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about meteorology and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding the water cycle, atmospheric cycle, ozone layer, global warming, energy creation or any other meteorology topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
  • Prefer learning science visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their meteorology unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in GED science

9 Lessons in Chapter 32: GED Science - Meteorology: Tutoring Solution
The Scientific Field of Meteorology

1. The Scientific Field of Meteorology

Thanks to meteorologists, we can plan for both short- and long-term weather events that affect our daily lives. But meteorology has been around a lot longer than the daily news, and this scientific field helps us better understand the world around us in a many ways.

The Water Cycle: Precipitation, Condensation, and Evaporation

2. The Water Cycle: Precipitation, Condensation, and Evaporation

This lesson discusses the processes water takes as it moves around the Earth in the water cycle. You'll get an in-depth look at condensation, precipitation, and evaporation.

Temperature, Clouds, Wind & Humidity on the Atmospheric Cycle

3. Temperature, Clouds, Wind & Humidity on the Atmospheric Cycle

Weather is the current state of the atmosphere and is determined by factors like temperature, pressure and humidity. These factors that cause periodic changes in the Earth's air masses are explored in this lesson.

Natural Factors That Determine a Region's Climate

4. Natural Factors That Determine a Region's Climate

Climate is influenced by factors like atmosphere, ocean currents, landforms and plate tectonics. This lesson explains how these effects affect our weather patterns, which determine climate.

The Ozone Layer: Importance and the Harmful Effects of Thinning

5. The Ozone Layer: Importance and the Harmful Effects of Thinning

In this lesson, you will learn the importance of the ozone layer and how it is depleted. You will also study the research and policy that has been instrumental in its recovery.

Global Warming: Atmospheric Causes and Effect on Climate

6. Global Warming: Atmospheric Causes and Effect on Climate

Global warming is a multifaceted, complex issue. It involves both natural and human causes that can increase the amount of greenhouse gases. This lesson looks at some of the facts about global warming and how they could contribute to climate change.

Creating Energy from Solar, Wind, and Water Sources

7. Creating Energy from Solar, Wind, and Water Sources

Much of what we do requires an energy supply. But where does this energy come from? Often we get it from natural sources, such as wind, water, and sunlight, and in this lesson, you'll learn how these can be converted to electricity for our everyday use.

Absolute Zero: Temperature & Definition

8. Absolute Zero: Temperature & Definition

There is a limit to how cold matter can get. Learn more about what happens when the temperature gets down to absolute zero and cannot get any lower. Test your knowledge with quiz questions.

Doldrums: Definition & Location

9. Doldrums: Definition & Location

Learn about the location of the doldrums and the mechanisms that create them. Understand how they are part of the general circulation of Earth and the importance of the doldrums on a global scale.
